It used to be that tech stuff was for the geeks. I think that the word geek actually started out as a derogatory term, though I might be wrong. In any case, as with most things, this has changed and today, if you are called a geek, it can actually be a good thing.
More people are becoming technophiles in varying degrees, and I think that the ease of access of information online is one of the main contributors. Blogs like The Fiery Source have definitely helped in dissemination information about technology, satiating the appetites of those who need to know what is new and what is hot in this sector. I really like this blog as it covers so many topics and the layout is quite pleasant to the eyes.
